bulletA Great Boy Scout Drink

To make a Scout's first out-door meal one he will always remember and tell about, top it off with his favorite cookies and a pot of Hike Chocolate Peppermint cooked by the Patrol. Here's how with the ingredients listed:

bullet1 can condensed milk (15 oz. size)
bullet1 can evaporated milk (14.5 oz. size) or 1 Pt. of milk
bullet4 bars plain milk chocolate
bullet1 large chocolate peppermint pattie

Most any restaurant you approach is glad to get rid of No. 10 cans. Get a clean one, and boil 3 quarts of water in it. Don't stand and watch it while it struggles into a boil, but open up those cans and break that chocolate into little slivers. Through with that? Then take the boiling water from the fire and dissolve the chocolate in it. Next, put in the condensed milk, then the evaporated to keep it company - and you're all through. Don't put the pot back on the fire. It's comfortably hot without reheating, even in winter.


While many parents object to tea or coffee for their children, they do not object to hike chocolate or cocoa.

Warning! It's very easy to burn cocoa when cooking it for the first time over an open fire, so watch!

Note that hike chocolate peppermint has the advantage of having all its ingredients precooked, and the peppermint obligingly overcomes the taste of both condensed and evaporated milk. Be sure to use the chocolate peppermint pattie.

If paper cups are used, avoid the waxed type for hot drinks.
